Enslow Salutes National Library Week

Enslow Publishers wants to take a moment to celebrate public librarians and school librarians/media specialists during National Library Week.(The ALA has provided some interesting public service announcement videos from Caroline Kennedy lauding librarians.) Librarians such as you juggle many balls, including working with adult and young patrons, providing programs that bring people to your library, and scouting content providers (such as Enslow) for material that make sense for your institution's collection development needs. We make every effort to understand your challenges and we appreciate the professionalism you bring to your jobs every day.

For young patrons, becoming familiar with a library's or media center's services helps them utilize the rich resources available. Enslow's Common Core correlated Master the Library and Media Center addresses this issue in ways accessible to elementary-aged readers. Author Ann Graham Gaines' age-appropriate text clearly and succinctly discusses the who, what, where, why, and how of a library. The 48-page book's friendly design, useful glossary, and excellent color photographs add zip and guidance to the book's important theme.

The book, part of Enslow's "Ace It! Information Literacy Series" is available directly from Enslow Publishers in a library-bound edition for $17.95. That price represents a 25% discount from Enslow's list price for that title.

Master the Library and Media Center is also available from your preferred vendor, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

The Music Scene, SLJ Review

"...clearly written, well organized, and copiously illustrated with full-color photographs of noted performers. All of them are good starting points for readers who know absolutely nothing about the genre featured." as reviewed in School Library Journal (Feburary, 2010) on:

The Hip-Hop Scene, author Ann Graham Gaines,
The Reggae Scene, authors Perter Manuel & Daniel Neely, and
